Honey-glazing your steamed carrots not only gives them a lovely sweet, buttery flavour but also makes them glisten – perfect for your Christmas lunch or any special occasion. You can also add herbs such as thyme with the butter.



  • carrots 750g long thin ones, peeled
  • honey 2 tbsp
  • butter 25g


  • Step 1

    Simmer the carrots in a large wide pan until just tender, about 15 minutes. Drain off all but a few tbsp of the cooking water then add the honey and butter and season well. Turn the carrots over the heat until glazed and golden.
